Hers was a near flawless 4 city run with Marc by Marc and Philosophy in NYC leading into Christopher Kane and Giles Deacon in London, the Prada and Missoni in Milan and the Miu Miu and Vuitton in Paris. It was a stealth performance that sharp eyed editors and photographers have made note of, which is exactly why DNA’s Alina now sits with a chart full of major editorial options.

« more F/W 09 Top Ten Newcomers

  1. I love her, her eyes are so amazing! She didn’t impress me this much last season (admittedly it’s not like she had a lot of time/shows to do so) but she’s looking gorgeous this season. <3

  2. Her skin is fresh but i find the features rather plain, i can see why she would work thou,the right eye bothers me.

  3. If you read the title, it says Top 10 newcomer (bonus)..

    In the past we actually had 20 top 10 Newcomers (10 in New York, 10 in Europe), so actually we’ve edited it down, to a smaller tighter list.


  4. nothing new and special!boring…absolutly boring!
    and its too many newcomers in this season…

  5. her eyes, something about her eyes… maybe too much caffeine. people go blind with pupils like that. dont look straight to the light Alina!

  6. Maybe it’s just this picture, but her face doesn’t seem too symmetrical. Nonetheless she’s stunning. I don’t think she’ll have an editorial break through F/W 09 but she may be one to watch next season.

  7. Boring, completely average. This is not beauty, this is plain average.
    This is why models don’t get magazine covers anymore!
    These girls are too young anyway, not special enough to make it big, why even bother? You’re wasting your time. These agents just pluck them and then just use them to try to make some money off of them.
    I’m so bored, sorry.

  8. I’d have to agree that it’s something about the look in her eyes. She seems very calm. Her mind is almost blank and it appears nothing can hurt her.

  9. Not at all.

    There’s something so incredibly elegant and sophisticated about alina. and she WILL do very well.

    What happened? used to be a source of information for all people who love fashion. Today the site is better than ever in many regards. but lately it’s been a haven for people who simply want to criticize models and complain about who they wish to be in the spotlight. We all have different taste. is it not more interesting that fashion introduces so many new interesting faces and doesn’t over publish every girl who’s achieved moderate success?

    Things have to change, if you’re not happy with where it’s going, wait little while, as it won’t be long before you see something new which you approve of.

  10. I think she looks beautiful and pure. But I do also think her bone structure isnt too special and it makes you wonder if it’s just opportunities that make a model famous.

  11. She is a pretty girl ,but i honestly don`t think she expresses anything…her face does`n say nothing to me…it`s all blank…she can say something with her eyes even if it`s a simple polaroid…
    that`s just my way of seeing things when it comes to this kind of top.

  12. I beg to differ. I don’t really like her look, nothing special to me. But seems like everyone loves her

  13. Dear Model Watcher,

    Will you please explain why her right eye bothers you? I’m only trying to recognize what you notice.

    Thank You,
    Cherise McGlone

  14. Beutifull but seeing her bones stick out scares me the prssure can get to much but thats not good to see on a well young girl.

  15. She is so cool. She is simple and beautiful. I love her skin.
